Synopsis of book»

Hot on the heels of her national New York Times bestseller, The Game, comes a tantalizing new adventure from Laurie R King, and author hailed by the Washington Post as "a one-woman case for the defense of unauthorized literary sequels...intelligent, witty, [and] complex."

In 1924, San Francisco is booming. The great fire and earthquake of 1906 cleared the ground for a modern city, but the closer she comes to the place she used to call home, the more troubling Mary Russell`s dreams become... As Russell and her husband, the eminent Sherlock Holmes, attempt to settle their affairs in the City by the Bay, Mary`s past isn`t the only thing that catches up with them - a mysterious stranger is waiting for the pair, and may be the only one who holds the key to the locked rooms that have been haunting Mary`s dreams...

In Locked Rooms, internationally bestselling author Laurie R King portrays the 1920s in exuberant detail and, with near-lyrical prose, presents a compelling murder mystery that will keep your imagination and attention locked in its pages until the very end.
